Trivia[]

  • When Any Means Necessary still had a cool-down, the Auras of dropped Pallets would be hidden while it was active.
  • Unlike Windows of OpportunityIconPerks windowsOfOpportunityIconPerks windowsOfOpportunityIconPerks windowsOfOpportunity, Any Means Necessary does not reveal the Auras of Illusionary Pallets conjured in their dropped state by MadnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madnessIconStatusEffects madness.
    • This is because those Pallets cannot be interacted with, which is a prerequisite for Any Means Necessary, whereas Windows of Opportunity just shows Auras.
